National Health Care Week
– October 6 – 12
National Catholic Health Care Week will be celebrated in Canada from Sunday, October 6 to Saturday, October 12.
Awaken: revealing the courageous gift of Catholic health care is a joyful celebration and a mindful call to action. We celebrate the determined, audacious women of faith who started a revolution in Canada before Canada was even a country. They laid the groundwork for what we now know as health, education and social services. Today, we continue to serve with the same core of deep-hearted desire. The courageous gift we offer—and the one we receive—is the ability to be part of one another’s humanity. Our call to action is to give voice to Catholic health care, cultivating a groundswell of stories and deepening realization of the impact of our work in Canadian society.
